A new show debuts on FX tonight and NPR TV critic Eric Deggans thinks it could be one of the best new finds of 2016.

“The People vs. OJ Simpson” will be the first season of the new true crime TV series “American Crime Story.” The story is centered on the trial of the former NFL star who was accused of killing his wife and another man, and then acquitted.

Deggans talks with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about why he loves the show. He praises comedian Louis C.K.’s new online series “Horace and Pete,” which was released exclusively on his website.
